Words matter and the fact that he did not apologize speaks volumes to me. The last time I dealt with something like this was when I had a company commander who told all of us in a training meeting that "PTSD is just an excuse and doesn't exist." This was in a room full of seasoned combat veterans who were struggling with a variety of issues within their platoons or themselves. I can understand one man's personal viewpoint but to be so callous as to state this publicly on a Fort Bliss website smacks of poor leadership. Thoughts?
